Banish resistant grays with fresh colour
Salt-and-pepper hair can make you look older than you feel. But you can still bring your colour back to life with a new shade, and, no, it doesn’t have to be an exact match of the original colour of your hair.
Challenge Resistant Gray
Your hair appears gray when it loses all the pigment that gave it colour. Gray hair can be more resistant to haircolour than the pigmented hair. To make sure you are covering all of your gray hair, choose products specifically formulated to cover 100 percent gray, like Excellence Creme® or Superior Preference®. To get great results, apply colour to gray areas first and leave it on for the maximum amount of time advised in the instructions.
Highlight It Away
If you have only a few gray strands and your hair is naturally blonde to medium brown, you can easily camouflage the gray in your base colour by highlighting. You’ll create a beautiful, multitonal effect that will appear very natural. If your hair is dark or you have a lot of gray, you can still use highlights to decrease the contrast of a salt-and-pepper look. The lighteners in the highlights will blonde your dark hair and leave the gray, resulting in a much more even shade.
Very dark haircolour, especially black, tends to intensify the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and other signs of age. Pick a shade one to two levels lighter than your natural colour to help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
